A domestically travelling ministry is calling all pastors, teachers and church leaders to unite and join in prayer for the country tomorrow night.
Change Bahamas Ministries, founded by Prophet Leo Adderley, is hosting the Gathering of Prophets Conference 2018 at the BCPOU Hall under the theme "Waging War for the Islands". Doors for the event open at 6pm.
The conference will begin with a time of intercession led by Patricia Pratt-Johnson and worship led by Minister Shaniqua Hanna-Thurston.
"This highly anticipated service has attracted ministers of the gospel from every major island of the Bahamas to join forces in prayer to 'shake this nation'," Prophet Adderley told Tribune Religion.
Apostle Leon Wallace of Voice of Deliverance Ministries, Apostle Rodney Roberts of Five Porches Deliverance Ministries and Prophetess Saveletta Fowler of Final Hour Global Ministries will be sharing one platform and prophetically declaring the word of God on the night.
Among the major goals of the conference is calling a solemn assembly of leaders, believers and sinners for a time of repentance while also uniting preachers of every major island of the Bahamas to come together in prayer for the nation.
"I really hope the conference brings about a shift of repentance. We are praying for revival, we are praying that the church gets back to its rightful place and be the united front that the God has called us to be. I pray that this conference also breaks down the barriers, denominations and religion, because there is too much division in the Church," said Prophet Adderley.
Prophet Adderley said he received the vision for Change Bahamas almost three years ago after the Lord spoke to him, giving him clear instructions of visiting every major island of the Bahamas and to declare his words to this nation. He began this journey in January of 2016 in Exuma, the island on which he resides and is pastor of the Great Assignment Kingdom Church.
As a result of his obedience to God, he said almost 10,000 people have come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. He said he has seen many people delivered, healed, and miracles and prophesies come to pass. And he hopes the same will happen as a result of tomorrow night's gathering.
"This is the first annual conference that we are hosting in Nassau because it is usually held on Exuma," he told Tribune Religion.
"During the conference we have a time of intercession and worship, then we will have speakers who will share what God puts on their heart. Then there is a segment where all of the pastors will come on the pulpit and pray for the nation. As it stands, over 50 pastors have confirmed attendance."
For past two years, Prophet Adderley said he has been heeding the call of God, travelling from island to island to spread the gospel and impact the lives of people.
"I travel to an island at least once month, but there are times when I am travelling to those islands twice a month. This evangelism ministry is highly anticipated on the islands," he said.
This month, Prophet Adderley is expected to travel to Andros for his ministry.
